This is a new and extensively revised edition of Martin Parrʼs classic photobook Small World.

First published in 1996 Small World is one of the most popular and most important of Martin Parrʼs books. It has been in print continuously since its first publication. This revised and extended edition includes more than 80 photographs and features many of Martin Parrʼs most iconic images.

It is a biting, very funny satire in which Parr looks at tourism worldwide, exposing the increasingly homogenous ‘global cultureʼ where in the search for different cultures those same cultures are destroyed. In a world of ‘carbon footprintsʼ, global warming and climate crisis, the issues that Parr raised almost thirty years ago when the book was first published are even more relevant today.
